5:04pm
average speed drops to less than half of the normal more than 4 hours per week. the bay area had 4 spots in the top 40. these are places that won't come as a surprise to most bay area commuters. making the list was this 3 and half mile stretch of west bound highway 24 in the east bay. this is where traffic bottlenecks on a daily basis trying to get through the caldecott tunnel. next, this 8 and a half mile section of the bayshore freeway. this is west bound interstate 80 from cutting boulevard to the bay bridge toll plaza. also, the opposite direction of 80 made the list, from cypress street to university avenue in berkeley. and finally, in san francisco, east bound interstae 80 from 101 to treasure island made the list. this is the western approach to the bay bridge in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. thought >> pam: our team coverage continues now. with kron 4's justine waldman in san francisco. justine, you just spoke with local traffic officials
5:05pm
about what is being done ease congestion. >> reporter: they are very aware that traffic can be terrible in the bay. but they want to avoid something like this. this backup of the interstate-80 towards the bay bridge this is exactly part of the problem. the metropolitan transportation commission has as planned in the works. let me show you with adding more express lanes. people that are willing to pay a told to drive a car pool lane. also, more metred lives if they want to pay another toll--that will allow for smoot the smaller the wrath and merging. and also, more traffic cameras. and more information on any traffic accidents. i asked
5:06pm
the c h p why would they think that these will work? >> we are a bit late to the table on the express lanes. they have been used even actively around the country and to be your lights are already working. we have seen those on all other corridors around the bay area. they are very effective. >> reporter: many of those schools are a few years off. it is not about reducing traffic but managing the problem that we have. so it does not become overwhelming. at 6:00 p.m., why the ntsb told me flat out that we should expect traffic to get worse. that is coming up more at 6:00 p.m., justin waldman, kron 4. >> pam: kron4 crews hit the streets today -- getting your commute horror stories. >> i think that the traffic
5:07pm
maze is pretty awful. >> coming into san francisco is a difficult call 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. and tried to get out of the city. that is why i want to hurry. >> because i live in the bay area up by to not sometimes make my flight at s f o. >> reporter: because the traffic is so bad? >> yes, the bay bridge, the merit, or the golden gate. and it is unpredictably pat on the-marin county. >> pam: it can be unpredictably -- that bad. here's a look at some of the new traffic study -- it measured hours wasted in thewashington d-c came in first came in second place, tied with los angeles. list. coming in at the number 29 new tonight -- kron4 investigates what's behind the hike. right now, prices nearly

5:09pm
this, adds up to a 20¢ spike in one week. >> this is the month of february. going on vacation. sometimes they use the month of february to fix things. typically, because nothing happens. at the price of oil has gone up but not enough to explain this gasoline price. the bottom line is that we have a lot more gasoline this year and last year. the price should be lower, not higher. >> pam: if that is true and are we perhaps getting price gouge? >> reporter: it could be market manipulation it could be legal, illegal. >> pam: what can we do? >> reporter: not a lot right now people are tracking mess. the senators on the east coast, washington, calif., tracking this. they have been calling this for months and nothing has
